Tasmin Little and Much More at Three Harbours .... starting May 31st
Star violinist to take a bow at Three Harbours Festival
Internationally acclaimed violinist, Tasmin Little is to be one of many major artists involved at the Three Harbours Festival. She will be performing in and about Cockenzie Power Station which has fantastic indoor acoustics!
The classical music star, who has performed with some of the best orchestras across the world, will give an opening concert on May 31 against the backdrop of the Cockenzie Power Station's twin chimneys which will be lit up for the occasion. Tasmin Little will also conduct a "masterclass" session with young East Lothian musicians in a Native American tipi during the festival.
Festival organiser Andrew Crummy said: "It's fantastic to have someone of Tasmin's reputation at our festival this year and it's also great to have a high-profile musician which emphasises that our Three Harbours Festival isn't just about visual arts. It also embraces music, theatre, poetry, tapestry, writing and more.
"This year is the 40th anniversary of Cockenzie Power Station which holds a key place in our community, so it is particularly fitting that it is playing such a big role in our festival this year. Scottish Power have of course been sponsors of our Festival since its inception."
